Burges' Sanchez proves she belongs with best in the U.S., on national TV


PHOENIX, Ariz (CBS4) -- Burges senior Natalie Sanchez finished third, behind a couple of all-american NCAA prospects on Friday - the national high school 3-point contest aired Sunday on CBS4.

Sanchez was voted in by fans as the American Family Insurance Fearless Dreamer, but quickly showed she was a force to be reckoned with after draining 17 first-round points.

The Mustang added another point to that score in the second-round (18 pts) but missed the cut for the semifinal round.

Sanchez will return to El Paso as the third-place finisher.

The Borderland sharp shooter will continue her basketball career at Southern Utah, next season.
